Reflection from Ryno Rangel
“Therefore consider the members of your earthly body as dead to immorality, impurity, passion, evil desire, and greed, which amounts to idolatry.”
Idolatry-The worship of idols
Pay attention, we interpret greed as someone who wants much material things and gives none. But, the word of God says the greedy one is he who is proud. This is the worship of men of the earth. The greedy one is he who strives for self-righteousness, he trusts in his own riches, not the riches of God whom is Jesus Christ who is free for all.
“He who trusts in his riches will fall, But the righteous will flourish like the green leaf.”
The lesson is, do not lean on your own understanding, seek for the wisdom of God, ask and He will give. Search, and He will make known.
